Note to self
A friend and coworker told me that she'd rather not hear about the family stuff I've been dealing with, because it makes her feel helpless and she knows there isn't anything she can do. I was amused by her comment because, really, if there were something to be done, I would simply do it rather than indulge myself in talking about it. I hope I will always remember that it is when I feel most helpless in the face of someone's problems, that I do the most good by listening.
